APPENDIX
USE AND MAINTENANCE OF THE  CODE OF ORDINANCES
The following information is provided to assist in the use and proper maintenance of this Code of Ordinances.
DISTRIBUTION OF COPIES
   1.   OFFICIAL COPY.
   The “OFFICIAL COPY” of the Code of Ordinances must be kept by the City Clerk and should be identified as the “OFFICIAL COPY.” 
   2.   DISTRIBUTION.
   Other copies of the Code of Ordinances should be made available to all persons having a relatively frequent and continuing need to have access to ordinances which are in effect in the City as well as reference centers such as the City Library, County Law Library, and perhaps the schools.
   3.   SALE.
   The sale or distribution of copies in a general fashion is not recommended as experience indicates that indiscriminate distribution tends to result in outdated codes being used or misused. 
   4.   RECORD OF DISTRIBUTION.
   The City Clerk should be responsible for maintaining an accurate and current record of persons having a copy of the Code of Ordinances.  Each official, elected or appointed, should return to the City, upon leaving office, all documents, records and other materials pertaining to the office, including this Code of Ordinances.   
(Code of Iowa, Sec. 372.13[4])
NUMBERING OF ORDINANCES  AMENDING THE CODE OF ORDINANCES
It is recommended that a simple numerical sequence be used in assigning ordinance numbers to ordinances as they are passed.  For example, if the ordinance adopting the Code of Ordinances is No. 163, we would suggest that the first ordinance passed changing, adding to, or deleting from the Code be assigned the number 164, the next ordinance be assigned the number 165, and so on.  We advise against using the Code of Ordinances numbering system for the numbering of ordinances.
RETENTION OF AMENDING ORDINANCES
Please note that two books should be maintained:  (1) the Code of Ordinances; and (2) an ordinance book.  We will assist in the maintenance of the Code of Ordinances book, per the Supplement Agreement, by revising and returning appropriate pages for the Code of Ordinances book as required to accommodate ordinances amending the Code.  The City Clerk is responsible for maintaining the ordinance book and must be sure that an original copy of each ordinance adopted, bearing the signatures of the Mayor and Clerk, is inserted in the ordinance book and preserved in a safe place.
SUPPLEMENT RECORD
A record of all supplements prepared for the Code of Ordinances is provided in the front of the Code.  This record will indicate the number and date of the ordinances adopting the original Code and of each subsequently adopted ordinance which has been incorporated in the Code.  For each supplemented ordinance, the Supplement Record will list the ordinance number, date, topic, and chapter or section number of the Code affected by the amending ordinance.  A periodic review of the Supplement Record and ordinances passed will assure that all ordinances amending the Code have been incorporated therein.
DISTRIBUTION OF SUPPLEMENTS
Supplements containing revised pages for insertion in each Code will be sent to the Clerk.  It is the responsibility of the Clerk to see that each person having a Code of Ordinances receives each supplement so that each Code may be properly updated to reflect action of the Council in amending the Code.
AMENDING THE CODE OF ORDINANCES
The Code of Ordinances contains most of the laws of the City as of the date of its adoption and is continually subject to amendment to reflect changing policies of the Council, mandates of the State, or decisions of the Courts.  Amendments to the Code of Ordinances can only be accomplished by the adoption of an ordinance.
(Code of Iowa, Sec. 380.2)
The following forms of ordinances are recommended for making amendments to the Code of Ordinances:

New material may require the addition of a new SUBSECTION, SECTION or CHAPTER, as follows:
